Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Saturday’s Mix–24 June 2017

Welcome back to Saturday’s Mix. I recently had the wonderful adventure of going out into my Back Forty and playing hide-and-goat-seek.  You know–the mother goat takes her twin kids to pasture and leaves them there for me to find.  The kids made it safely back to the barn, but I noticed a lot while I was out there.

Sound.  There are many different sounds all mixed together out in the pasture–birds, insects, the wind, farm animals, my own huffing and puffing up the hill–that make the beauty even better.

I can’t imagine living in a city with its myriad sounds as well–traffic, cars honking, industrial noises, noisy neighbors, and whatever else you hear in cities.  No matter where we are, sound can make a setting more beautiful or it can annoy us.

Can you imagine sounds that don’t really exist?  What would a heart sound like when it’s broken?  What noise does a unicorn make?  What is the sound of joy?

The task today is to write a short prose or poetry piece that illustrates the importance of sound in the world around us.  As a bonus, try to use onomatopoeia–words that sound like their meaning.  For example: The steam hisses before evaporating into nothingness.

As always feel free to use one of the images.

Once you’ve written your piece please tag your work Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie and Saturday Mix then either ping back or put a link to your work in the comments below.  To make things simpler you can add your link to the Mr. Linky app below so everyone will be able to quickly find your work.
